The city of Detroit, also called Mototown, is located in the state of Michigan on the border between the USA and Canada and is a great starting point for a trip by rental car. The 370 square kilometre urban area of Detroit is located between Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair. About 700,000 people live in the metropolis on the river of the same name, several million tourists from all over the world visit the city every year due to its historical sights and attractive surroundings. From Germany you arrive by plane at the international Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport. Located in the Romulus district, the airport handles 380,000 aircraft movements annually, handling 33 million passengers.
You can travel the 28 km to the city centre comfortably by rental car. At the airport every known car rental company is present with a counter. The rental car will be made available to you within a few minutes if you have rented it cheaply on our portal before departure. Spontaneous local rental rarely leads to a car that meets all requirements, because the demand for a car rental is extremely high. By making a reservation from our portal, you can relax in your rental car after signing the rental agreement and head for a varied holiday in the USA. Here are some suggestions for car hire in and around Detroit.
A walk along the well-kept promenade of the Detroit River is very relaxing after a long flight. Park your rental car in the designated areas and enjoy the flair sitting in a café. The view across the river is fantastic. From here you could go to Campus Martius Park, enjoy regional food or watch a volleyball game or concert.
The United States in different eras can be experienced in the Henry Ford Museum. Here you will learn about the influence of the automobile on the development of the city, and at the same time you can look at furniture and other objects from different times. More than 80 historical buildings as replicas are waiting for your visit.
Since we have been working with every Detroit airport car rental company for a long time, you can rent any desired vehicle including individual accessories from us. Use the search mask on our portal to find a tailor-made rental car in just a few steps. Once the booking has been completed, the handover at the airport car rental takes only a few moments. The criteria to which you should pay attention when booking are explained below.
Let the car rental company at Detroit Airport explain to you the so-called "4Way Stop" and the local speed limits, otherwise the US regulations are similar to those in Germany.
You want to see cheap more of the United States and maybe go to Florida or California? Then choose the one-way option when renting, with which you only have to specify the airport of your arrival and return home. It is also important to return the vehicle at the same car rental company as you have been given.
Your rental car remains as cheap as booked if you insure it with comprehensive insurance without excess. In the event of an accident, this policy covers the entire loss, while in the case of an insurance policy with a deductible, you will be involved in the settlement.
Rental car insurance provides you, the tenant, with the agreed protection. This only includes an additional driver if he is integrated into the contract by the car rental company at the airport. We recommend this formality to be completed in a few minutes. If an unregistered driver causes an accident, you will be liable for the total loss, because the insurance automatically expires.
Every car rental company will give you a rental car only on bail . This amount is blocked by the lessor on the credit card when the vehicle is handed over and released again after successful return of the car. No car rental company will accept the amount in cash or by bank transfer
